night shots ...

Took my MX-1 to Griffis Sculpture Park in East Otto, NY for a "Night Lights Festival". The park is located in a very rural area and it was extremely dark outside. The park trails, trees, and sculptures are illuminated with lights and visitors are free to explore at your leisure. I set the camera scene mode to "handheld night" and that worked well. It was my first visit there and I plan on returning during the day for a better look around.

Interesting pictures. nothing extremely sharp, but that is to be expected with hand held in the dark. The colors are nice and vibrant.

I find I get good results at night by shooting at the wider end of the zoom range in Av @ f1.8 and @ 1000-1600 iso. Any noise can be easily taken out in post.
